Aunt Su's Pizza House

Yuki and I was looking for a quick dinner after class because we had a 8pm celebration with my friend that just got a job. So I remembered a pizza place I saw several times near the Sun Yat-Sen memorial. It always looked packed and the pizza smelled divine. I can appreciate a good pizza. So we took a bus ride over to the Aunt Su's Pizza House (蘇阿姨比薩屋吃到飽). The place was packed and busy, but we didn't have an issue getting a seat promptly. They have two ways to order. All you can eat or by the pie. All you can eat is around $380 NT. And they do it, brazilian style. As in, a waitress walks around to each table and asks you you want a piece of whatever flavor she happens to have. The flavors rotate. We decided against that. That just sounds like ALOT of food. We ordered a small pizza that comes with three crust options. Thin, Medium and Thick. As a Chicago-an, I'm obligated to select the thick crust. Also, I'd like to mention, they have fried chicken too. Odd, but it looked just as good as the pizza. It took about 15 minutes, before our pizza arrived. Definitely thick crust, not Chicago stuffed/Deep Dish, but thick none the less. It was flakey and buttery! Perfect. For being in Taiwan, this is pretty damn good pizza. And the old 1950's Coka-cola advertisement interior design really hits it home. It's bustling with enjoyment and laughter like a real pizzeria. Cost us $400 for the small pie that can feed 2 people to FULL. I want to make a return visit with more friends!

  1. Actually,

    $380 NTD for a buffet should consider to be fairly expensive in Taiwanese standard. Since $380 NTD is equivalent to roughly $13 in US and most buffet next to my campus UCLA are around that price. Imagine a Taiwanese restaurant charge the same price as US.


  2. Yeah, it's expensive. But that about the price of AYCE here. AYCE hot pot around Gongguan is $500 NT. $380 is around the lower average of AYCE places here in Taipei, and pretty tasty place to spend it. I think the Taiwanese probably know a good american pizza place is hard to come by in Taipei too.

  3. I always get pizza every lunch and I'm enjoying it. Anywhere around you can search for a good food with different specialty of taste and you will get used to it. Happy eating everyone :)

  4. Xahnn, Your right I should be more accepting of different styles. But I have Chicago blood in me in regards to pan Pizza, so it's hard. I will give the taiwanese credit for being very creative with their toppings. Some work some don't. But for the love of pizza, put some more marinara sauce! =P

  5. Yup! They sure need to add more marinara sauce! So far Chicago factory pizza is the only place I am accepting :P
